Like a Smokey cocktail. Dry. Not like any wine I’ve had before — 2 days ago
I think this bottle was around 14 bucks, but I would gladly pay double that for it. Smells delightful. Green apples and peach on the nose. The bottle also says there's notes of fig. Crisp but delicate, I taste peach, something tropical, and toasted almond. Yummy. — 14 days ago
Although the Clos Erasmus pedigree clearly shines through, this is nowhere ready for drinking as advertised by the grower. The tannins need more time, although I doubt if I would ever rate this in the 94-95 range. The palate is full of spices and wood (cedar and oak) but the acid/tannin component could be better balanced. Excellent QPR nevertheless. — 17 days ago
Medium cloudy ruby; medium intensity aromas of ripe blackberry, mulberry, raspberry, black cherry, berry hard candy, subtle lees; dry, medium plus acid, medium alcohol, medium body, medium plus intensity flavors consistent with aromas; medium plus finish, well balanced, fruit flavors are ripe and confected, but not overly so — a month ago
I rated this entry level Priorat a year ago and remember it brighter than this year. The nose and pallet still bear loads of dark and red fruit with a sensory finish reminiscent of dried almonds. It is full bodied, dry, tannic, with medium alcohol and medium acidy. Still like the wine; however, in this case do drink young.
The pork chop with green beans and mushroom pasta worked wonderfully thought. — 22 days ago
